Congressman Kevin McCarthy who represents California’s 23rd district in a private meeting in which Speaker Paul Ryan was present, admitted that he believes that Russia was paying off Congressman Dana Rohrabacher who represents California’s 48th district and President Donald Trump.
Paul Ryan immediately cuts him off and does not let him to continue with his statement. When another individual who was present made a sarcastic remark, then Congressman McCarthy says “I swear to God, it is true.”
Paul Ryan then makes statement that this should not leak out and must stay in this room. That is what a family is. Apparently Speaker of the House believes that these members are members of his family and what is said remains within the family.
This was leaked out and when Paul Ryan was confronted with this, he obviously denied it, but then he was told that there is a tape of this conversation, then he and Congressman McCarthy said it was a joke.
That is right, the same way, when Donald Trump was confessing that he was grabbing women’s private parts was a “boys locker room talk”.
Apparently Congressman Dana Rohrabacher has special feeling for President Vladimir Putin too. Congress, regardless of party affiliation must conduct a thorough investigation on this matter. One cannot believe that Congressman Kevin McCarthy who is the majority leader makes such statement as a joke about his colleague, Congressman Dana Rohrabacher and about the President of United States.
The very fact that Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, said that it should not leak out and must stay within the family is very much troubling. If it was indeed a joke, then why Paul Ryan made such statement?
One must thank Congressman McCarthy for his honesty, as this is the second time that he has made statements which had profound impact and brought the truth out. The First time was when he admitted that how Republicans planned to destroy Hillary Clinton’s candidacy by keep the Ben Ghazi story in the front, even though they knew that there was nothing there to hold Hillary Clinton responsible for. And now the confession about payments by Vladimir Putin to Congressman Rohrabacher and President Trump. One wonders what secrets are about President Trump and Russia that need to be exposed!!!!
